Provide Proof: By including a bit of actuality and surrounding these bare bone issues with a plush environment, the author of aSpice Upa, Rachel A. Frias, brings fiction to life through story and conversation. Each of the 21 stories in aSpice Upa is unique and contains at least one element of surprise as one reads the daring writeras composition atake for instance the short story titled, aNoahas Cella- where the interpretation of Noahas old wooden boat tale, is taken to the extravagant clarification of being a human cell, which carries the genetic code to form all animals on Earth, if the process of development is stopped at different times. Fermias Paradox relays the unattainable space odyssey athat of leaving Earth to survive in a different part of the Universe. Be original: To illustrate further the novelty of these 21 short stories in aSpice Upa by Rachel A. Frias, check that such a modern topic as Tax fraud by Mr. Merredith aa retired teacher and tax advisor- takes advantage of Bernie, who innocently, spreads the word on how to become fraudulent. Counter Objections: aSpice Upa is a work of fiction not meant for children because some topics are censored to minors. These short stories address situations that can occur in a community and are a mild recall in awareness that what could happen can be prevented and avoided as what could happen in aThe Jewsa where a personality exchange scares Grace away from Jewish men, forcing her to hate them. 2.

Controversial topics are presented, inviting the readeras possible curtailed stimulation to be uplifted, and provoke thoughts otherwise committed to the discretion of others. 3. Where do these books take place? Mainly NY, the USA and Europe. I thought of writing a short story on Eskimos. 4. Who are the main characters, what are their relationships, and why are they important to the story? The characters are diverse, well defined, random types who are victims or aggressors making important decisions on current, controversial issues, based on their life styles and upbringing. 5.
